About this trip

While tourists may flock to Cairo for the neighboring pyramids, it’s the chaotic (ancient version of) modern city that captures their hearts. On the one hand, Cairo is ancient and humbling, but on the other, it can be contemporary, hectic, and often confusing. Between the ancient mosques and modern city streets, discover the city on the doorstep of history that has enchanted visitors for thousands of years.


Cairo has been around since around 900 CE, so you can imagine, there’s a lot to see! Admire the graceful architecture of every souk and mosque in the ancient quarter. We explore sites and have access to many experiences that not every traveler gets to see. 


Usually regarded as being geographically part of Asia, the Sinai Peninsula is the northeastern extremity of Egypt and adjoins Israel and the Gaza Strip on the east. Dahab, though touristy, sits on Holy Land. It’s also home to the only locally owned Bedouin hotel with organic farm and is the best city to stay in prior to visiting the most striking of Holy Lands.

Watch the sunrise over Saudi Arabia and the Red Sea, sunset over St. Catherine, hang out with our Bedouin guides in Mt. Sinai valley (it’s quiet the hike, just so you know 👀 ).

The group Rani put together was great. We were usually behind because we talked too much. Wonderful stops with relatable guides, pleasant drivers with great food/wine. Portugal was beautiful and so different from city to city. It was enough history for me to talk about it when I got home but with more good food and discussion to make the trip remarkable.

I am so pleased I got to join this fabulous trip. Rani planned an incredible trip. It had just the right amount of planned fun activities and free time in beautiful places. Rani helped orient us to each new city, set up great accommodations and meals, and hired the best local guides, so we felt we got to know the place and it’s people too. Rani was a lot of fun and so caring. I had a small accident with my eye and she quickly helped me by getting help from a local pharmacy. She enthusiastically helped us with any questions we had and helped us plan our free time. And I really enjoyed my fellow travelers.

This trip was so wonderful. Rani Cheema is a terrific guide. She also is an amazing planner, as things had to be fluid with the Covid situation changing constantly. We had amazing experiences and I would travel with her again in a heartbeat. I will travel with her again!

If there were an option for a 4.5 stars, I would have chosen that. The trip was truly wonderful, great experiences not every tourist would have access to, amazing food experiences including cheese making (the lunch provided by the host was one of the best experiences of the trip), bread making, cooking classes, tastings and all paired with plenty of wine! Who could ask for anything more?? I love that Rani interviews the travelers in advance and we got to at least meet virtually prior to the trip. Maybe luck, maybe not, but the group I traveled with was amazing and everyone really traveled well together. That was definitely a concern as I'm not typically a group tour kind of traveler. My "nits" are that the details of each day's events need to be more fleshed out so that one can decide if they want to go off on their own and meet up later along the way, or duck out early. Some of the uncertainty was weather and COVID related so I really can't lean in too hard on that critique. Bottom line, amazing trip and I would highly recommend Rani and Cheema's Travel. If you're on the fence...go for it!

Such a well organized and curated trip, including selection of the group members who all got along so well. Rani is clearly obsessed with making her clients have a fabulous experience, is herself excited about all the activities, and works hard to make local relationships and connections. Really outstanding experience.
